4 Year Old Collie Cannot Move Back Legs

December 22nd, 2003, 09:48 PM
My mother has a 4 year old collie named Lassie. My mom said that about 10 days ago Lassie started eating less. Now the dog cannot move her back legs. I went to see her myself and her back legs actually looked partly paralyzed. She looks like she cannot control them and they seem just to be dragging. They look like she has lost muscle control. What can it be?

I agree w/Luba. Please get this dog to a Vet ASAP!!

You can be doing more damage by not taking it to the vet.

Please keep us posted, and let us know what was wrong w/her.

Good Luck.

could be temporary?

maybe it's a sprained muscle

but seek medical attention for your dog ASAP

I hate it when people come on here with a serious problem and then don't post updates...
Hope the dog got some care; Claudia if you read this please come back & let us know!

I hope she comes back and lets us know what happened to her dog.

I too hate it when people ask for advice and they don't post updates, or they get mad b/c they don't like the advice.:mad:

If you don't want our advice then don't ask for it.
